Is your bike STOCK?? Have the Cams been changed? Do you have Stock Cam CHAINS & TENSIONERS, or is it updated to GEAR DRIVEN Cams? Either way, you have a Cam and or Lifter Problem, and if you are not a Harley Mechanic with access to Shop type tools and Equipment, then I suggest you take you Harley to a reputable repair shop for diagnosis and repair. DO NOT CONTINUE TO RIDE WITH THIS PROBLEM, IT WILL NOT FIX ITSELF and will only cause you MORE EXPENSIVE DAMAGE. Good Luck! -Dr.Mark

I have a 2002 HD Heritage Softail Classic with an intermitent growling noise in the lower front end of the motor. It is louder when the engine is cold. The noise disapates when riding. Had all the fluids...

I don't work on the Twin Cam engines but I'll take a guess on this one. Your Softail is equipped with the Twin Cam 88-B engine. The engine is a counterbalanced engine that is different from the standard TC88 engine. The counterbalancer is located in the lower front of the engine cases. Go to this site to see what it looks like and where it's located. This may be where your problem is located. Keep in mind that I'm not a Twin Cam mechanic. I work on the Evolution and earlier engines and I'm not very familiar with the TC88-B engine but if the mechanics are stumped, I can't do any worse.

Good Luck

I am looking for a service/repair manual for a 1991 Harley Davison Springer with preferrably an 1340 engine. Can also be a 1350, 1440, or 1450 engine.

If you find a factory service manual, it will be for an 80 cubic inch (1340 cc) engine only. In 1991, all Big Twins came equipped with the 80 c.i. Evolution engine. The Twin Cam 88 c.i. (1450cc) engine didn't come out until 1999 in most of the Big Twin bikes and 2000 in the Softail bikes. Try this site for your manual.

Good Luck

What do i set my points at on my 1997 harley softail

Your 1997 Softail is not supposed to have points. Harley changed over to electronic ignition in 1979 on the Big Twins. But, if you do have points, set them at 0.018-0.020".

Good Luck!

Location of washers on front axle 2002 harley springer softtail

You need to be sure it is a washer and not a shim. The washer(s) will go on the nut side of the axel outside of the fork, shims will go inside the fork to center the tire.

Harley davidson how to change tensioners

If you have chain Tensioners then you have a Twin cam. This is NOT a job for an amature. Its necessary to take out Push rods which means remove heads or cut your pushrods and reinstall adjustables. You need to take out your cam plate,re align oil pump..Its not a simple job for a novice. If you have noise they have already exploded or are about to. Do not ride your bike..those plastic pieces can get sucked into the oil pump and do major damage. I told that to a customer that was going on a trip he did not heed warning. He got 75 miles they exploded and he bought a new motor.
